Event description

Description

TEDxDouglas returns with a host of inspirational speakers to fire your imagination and make you question what you think you know. The theme for this year is 'the power of an idea', and we have some fine ideas to showcase at the Youth Arts Centre in Douglas on Saturday afternoon, December 9.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Today, TED Talks have been viewed over a billion times www.ted.com

Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. TEDx events are independent from the main TED conferences, but operate under the same banner and follow similar principles and guidelines. There are more than 30,000 talks in the TEDx online library from presentations in 130+ countries: www.ted.com/tedx/events

  • John Morris – Co-founder and director of Geeks Without Frontiers: "Geeks Without Frontiers"
